Maybe you’ve been in your apartment for a few years, and it badly needs a new stove, or you’ve considered springing for a garbage disposal. Maybe some new bathroom fixtures are in order, or you’d like a new fridge. In many cases, a landlord will recognise the value of those upgrades and be willing to split the costs with you — or even cover them completely. Have you — if you’re a tenant — ever gotten a landlord’s hand with upgrades? If you’re a landlord, when are you willing to help and when won’t you? Share your tips and tricks in the discussion below.
